Shower sump holding tank by-pass ????

Boat is a 78 Tayana 37, Shower is forward on port side, right now, the shower pan drains to a holding tank and once it full ( couple days ) ya flip a switch @ the panel and pump it OB

Question is, why can't the shower pan be plumbed directly to the bilge, by-passing the need for the holding tank & sump pump.

What an I not taking into consideration by doing this

WinterRiver is on a distinguished road
Soap scum, hair, and other shower slime in the bilge? No thanks. That's a recipe for clogs and smells. The shower pan confines the slime and is easy to clean.

If you're trying to get rid of a shower holding tank, you could just pump overboard from the shower sump. Otherwise I don't see any reason to change the current set up. (If you have an urge to do plumbing work on a boat, mine needs plenty of help!)

Be right there, right after I replace the sump pump I was trying to avoid replacing

Pappy:

I agree with WR...especially if you have keel bolts or any thing like that in your bilge..Mine is rigged with a separate small bilge pump and flote inside a plastic battrie box that has been plumbed with two inlets one from the forward head and one from the aft.and then of course the discharge line with a check valve to a above waterline through hull.. Its an easy matter to clean , disinfect, deodorize,clean and or dry this small box. My bilge stays clean and dryer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
